Just a 'small' wrench.

Had to buy a 'small' wrench to do some work on the VMC.

This wrench is the perfect example of how much easier some jobs are with the right tools... I've been working to replace the thrust bearings in the VMC. Before I was trying to use a large adjustable wrench to loosen a preload nut while hanging onto the shaft with vise grips. 2 hours with no luck and I was making a real dogs breakfast of it... I finally clued in and went and bought the proper wrench. Ground some flats on the shaft I was trying to hang on to to fit a 1/2" wrench on there and then it came free on the first shot... Guess there really is a reason why we all end up with so many tools!
